If barrel fermented Chardonnay spins your wheels, it's time for you to wake up and smell the coffee.
Selection Chardonnay sits up the food chain from 'Old School' - which has been our #1 selling Chardonnay deal for as long as we can remember. Produced from a combination of Gimblett Gravels and Ohiti Valley fruit, Selection is a big, powerhouse style with lots of fruit generosity amplified by 100% malolactic fermentation in French Oak. The finish is long and persistent with creamy brulee flavours and a lovely lick of fresh acidity. Any lover of classic barrel fermented Hawkes Bay Chardonnay will love this wine - and you sure can't argue with our superdeal price. This truly is wonderful Chardonnay value. Climb in.
The winery writes "The nose is filled with brioche, peach, melon and grapefruit pith with hints of toasted nuts and spice. On the palate the wine is seamless with many different flavours flowing nicely together. All the hallmarks of an ultra-premium Chardonnay are present – the fruit, oak and MLF flavours coalesce together nicely. Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay at its absolute pinnacle for what is arguably a very low price for this kind of quality. Get in now before the boss decides to put the price up!"
